Forum: etree Subject: dead head needs download help, please!!!

I just downloaded the 1st show I ever saw, 4/25/83. WOW! What memories. I love this site already! I burned the 1st set to a cd. No problem. However, the 2nd set won't fit on another cd without deleting something. Is it still customary to put the encore with the 1st set (like we all used to do with cassettes) or is there a more compressed version where the whole show fits on 1 cd or what? What is the standard practice these days? I'm computer illiterate, so any help would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

splitting set 2 between drums and space (so that disc 2 ends with drums and disc 3 begins with space) is a widely used "convention" for dead shows!

If you were there, it seems worth using the extra disc to keep it just as you heard it, especially since discs are cheap. If you're nostalgic for the days of cassettes, though, do what you need to do. A lot of people delete the Drums / Space segment, since they generally skip it when listening anyway. I keep it in, but it's an idea, if you don't want to go to a third disc.
I miss random fillers. I found some great music through fillers, such as the String Cheese Incident a guy put at the end of a Phish show in '96 or so, or moe., or just great jams from other Phish shows.

Utlimately, it's your cd to listen to, so you should edit it to your prefences.
I have a few rules that I use for burning shows. First of all The only shows that I personally have to have every note of is the 200 + that I was at. Otherwise, to me the most important thing is to keep the 2nd set jam intact if at all possible, otherwise editing it between drums and space, as mentioned previously is ok too. Also, and I know I will catch the wrath of some purists, to me there are almost always 1st set songs (and sometimes 2nd set) that are disposable. I mean, the 50th Mama tried >Mexicali isn't gonna sound much different than the previous 49 (and spare me the "you've got to hear this one", I won't), and, personally, if I never hear another Victim Or The Crime, Hell In A Bucket or Picasso Moon, my life will not be any worse (apologies to all the Bobheads.). I find that, while there are some Jerry tunes (i.e. Day Job) in this list, most of them are Bobby songs, although there are many great Bob tunes I will never delete. Also most encores, and I'd put it at about 90%, are just the band rushing through some tired old song to go home, so I'll often delete that "killer" US Blues/Saturday night etc. One more thing I'll sometimes do to a CD that will really tick some of you off is edit the drums either out entirely or more often take a few minutes out to fit the entire 2nd st Jam onto a CD.
The point is that we burn these cds for our own listening pleasure, so my advice is to customize the show to your preferences.

In the past I've split the show into three CDs, of course if they're ">", you'll wanna keep that together...Sometimes you just have a CD that's only got twenty or thirty minutes on it....Of course, if there's some process that allows everything on one disc, that'd be cool - my kid records music as data and gets a whole lotta songs on one CD....

On the 3rd CD, you could also add some favorite cuts from either the Dead or somebody else to fill the remainder of the CD. It would not be the end of the world.
